Defenseman Randy Ladouceur was a solid physical player in his own zone who was rarely noticed by the fans. His career lasted over 900 games and was characterized by consistency and team oriented play as opposed to flair.

Born in Brockville, Ontario Ladouceur played two years with the OHA's Brantford Alexanders. After signing as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings, he spent a year each in the AHL and IHL working on his game. Ladouceur looked solid in 27 games as a rookie in 1982-83 before taking a regular turn on the blueline the next season. His solid play helped the club improve by 12 points and qualify for the post-season for the first time since 1978. Ladouceur played two and a half more years in Motown before he was traded to the Hartford Whalers for Dave Barr.

The steady rearguard played six and a half years with the Whalers and helped the team finish first in the Adams Division in 1986-87. Over the next five seasons, he was a reliable performer but the Whalers were caught in a rut, finishing fourth each year and losing in the first round of the playoffs. A respected presence on and off the ice, Ladouceur was the team's captain in 1991-92.

During the 1993 expansion draft, Ladouceur was claimed by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. He was a stabilizing influence on the young blueline and a role model off the ice. Ladouceur served as the team captain in 1994-85 then retired after playing 63 games in the 1995-96 season.
